The Uni Girl’s golf team has had a busy week. On Monday, we played the first day of league finals. During this day of the tournament we were making up a match against Woodbridge that was cancelled due to the canyon fire last week. We beat Woodbridge to secure a co-championship with them for the PCL. Yesterday, 5 of our starters advanced on to the CIF first round. There are only 9 golfers that can qualify from our league and Uni has 5. Here are the results of the Pacific Coast League Finals:
Dana Choi finished 2nd, Nodoka Honda 4th, Alexis Kim 5th, Samantha Cabunag 6th, and Coco Yang 7th. They move on to play CIF as individuals next Tuesday. The team also qualified for the CIF Team Division to be played 10/30.
UNI Cross Country competed at the Orange County Championship meet this past Saturday at Oak Canyon Park. We had some exciting performances in the varsity girls race. Freshman Collette Lowengrub continues to impress as she was named “All County” by finishing as the #3 fastest freshman of the entire day with a time of 18:49. Avery Klauke also had a great race, finishing 14th overall (time 19:18) in the varsity race against some tough competition. Lowengrub and Klauke both finished in the top 100 in the county, placing 31st and 72nd respectively. The rest of our varsity finishers included Marta Meinardi, Sydney Field, Vani Tankha, Roseanne Yu and Harper Klauke. This weekend we will be at the Riverside Invitational where we look forward to racing on the CIF SS championship course. GO UNI XC!
The boys Cross Country had another tough weekend at the OC Cross Country Championships. Uni’s true nature was seen with 55% of the team out for ACT and PSAT testing. Our top performance for the day came from Christian Go, Chris Lohmeyer, and Daniel Vilchis. Our next meet will be this Saturday at the Riverside Invitational. The team will be at full strength and we look forward to some more PR’s on the season. Go Trojan Cross Country
Come out and support the girls next Monday, Oct. 23rd. The girls will be taking on Beckman in the Uni gym for their last game of the season. It is also their senior night. Varsity plays at 5:15 PM. Hope to see you there!
The Uni girls varsity tennis team defeated Irvine on Tuesday. On Wednesday the girls lost to CDM. Sophomore Cami Brown had her best performance of the season winning two out of her three sets against some of the top girls in So Cal. Playing on center court at the Racquet Club of Irvine, Cami capped off her impressive day with a 6-2 win over a girl who had defeated her a week earlier. The girls are now 5-2 in the Pacific Coast league and 9-4 overall and will be on the road at Woodbridge today.
Boys Water Polo
The University Boys water polo team beat Irvine on Tuesday with a close victory of 13-12. With it being senior day, the game had plenty of pre game distractions. Starting the game, the Irvine High team jumped up with 2 quick unanswered goals, and it was an upward climb to catch up in the first half. However, pulling his team from a 3 goal deficit, Co-team Captain Joe Nagy rallied in the 3rd quarter. With help from seniors Bennett Kidder, Nelson Tello, Kyle Mumm, and freshman Matt Wallin and Stewart Campbell all adding clutch goals. Contributing to this top performance was the defensive efforts of Bennett Kidder and Andrew Weller. An overall effort by the entire teams efforts is what brought UNI to victory, and gave our athletes the best league record they have had in their 4 years here.
